Do you want to run a 10K and need some help with training? We've got you covered.

This gradual training program is designed to prepare participants who are currently comfortable running 5k to run faster 10k's over the course of 10 weeks. Participants often begin at different levels of fitness and are encouraged to complete each training session to the best of their ability.  The Run 10k program is progressive and fun.  Experience running at least 5km runs is recommended.

Join us for an engaging workout with our experienced run clinic leader, Tara.  Weekly sessions will consist of a 10 min instructional class covering training, fitness and technique, followed by a 50 min group run session.   A training plan will be provided to you at the first session outlining the entire clinic.  Weekly emails will keep you in touch with your coach and on-top of the training plan.

This clinic includes a free entry into Race TWO on Sunday April 9th.

Cost is $40

Course runs from February 21st to April 25th, 2017.
